Ft. Wayne Churches Reaching “the Least of These”

Ft. Wayne Churches Reaching “the Least of These”

Forty years ago, a homeless man walked into Broadway Christian Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and told the church secretary that he was hungry. The only food she had was her own lunch, so she shared it with him. The next day, more hungry people came to the church. As church members became aware of the need, they began dropping off food and clothing at the church. This ultimately gave birth to a ministry called InAsMuch—the name taken from Matthew 25:35-40, in which Jesus says, “Inasmuch as you have done this to one of the least of these, you have done it to me.” InAsMuch has acted on Jesus’ words and reached out to the “least of these” in their community.

‘Ordinary’ Christians Can Reach Muslims Better than Specialists

The January, 2017 Lausanne Global Analysis reports that “… violence is actually discrediting Islam in the eyes of millions of Muslims worldwide. It is a major factor in many of them turning to Christ, as Muslims begin to question their Islamic identity. Thus, at the same time as presenting a real threat, it also presents one of the greatest opportunities of our time: to unveil Jesus to Muslim people in the Western world and bring them to Christ.”
